The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.538 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, protests are legal but strictly supervised, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph That Guy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 44,268th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -5 on the Hayek Index.
